  • Do you have a former employer you could work for remotely?
    You can search for jobs that match you skill set and have a telecommute option.
    If you have a computer with high speed internet & Microsoft Office Pro & have at least intermediate MS Office skills, you should be able to find work as a virtual assistant (VA). For more information, go to,, ..
    Do you have a skill or experience that you can turn into a home based business? I have a friend who makes children's hair accessories in her basement & sells them to boutiques around the Midwest. My husband runs a handyman business from our home. I work from home with two lines of business; I do freelance bookkeeping & business organization (along with medical billing), I also do career and job search coaching.

  • Why not work part time ( I mean really part time ) and earn money that will continue month after month - regardless if you continue to work? This is what my work at home business is - I love it - I know that I am making a difference and that the money will continue regardless of what my crazy life throws at me! Contact me for more information. There is no risk - its worth taking a look at!
